Fresh Michigan Fruit For Breakfast

raspberry, blackberry, strawberry and cherry all lined up in a row

June is the month our favorite fruits and veggies are ready in Michigan. It begins with tender asparagus and follows through with a variety of beans, peas, potatoes, rhubarb, squash, strawberries, and peaches. It’s a wonderful time to visit the farmers’ markets and pick up freshly picked produce for your camping trip.

There is nothing like fresh picked fruit for breakfast when you are camping. Something about it just tastes sweeter and makes meals more memorable. You can grill fresh peaches until they have just begun to caramelize, then serve them with a cool dollop of yogurt and some toast. Or make some campfire pancakes and skip the syrup by mashing fresh strawberries with a little bit of sugar and pouring that on top. So heavenly.

Blackberries and blueberries can be added to morning oatmeal or layered with yogurt and granola for a breakfast parfait. Camping breakfast don’t have to be all bacon and eggs. Sometimes the early birds like to have something light and then the whole family can eat the hearty breakfast together later in the morning.
